    I would like to see an example of the other parameters as well... I am COMPLETELY stumped as to how to use them!

    random_post_type or random_cat_id

    Can you please give an example?

    Here is how you do it:

    ?random&random_cat_id=3 or ?random&random_post_type=post

    Thanks JD @ jdh23.com !!

    the random_post_type parameter works fine for me, but the random_cat_id just won't for my blog...

    e.g. http://c0o1.com/?random&random_post_type=page works fine.

    My category IDs are 8, 18 and 19,
    e.g. http://www.c0o1.com/?random&random_cat_id=8
    returns me to my newest post.

    Can you please take a look?

    Many of these Q&As would not be necessary if Matt could be bothered documenting his plugins properly, his documentation is often in the cryptic to non-existent bracket. This plugins documentation is correct BUT with two teasers thrown in as an afterthought with no examples given. We are NOT all geeks!!!

    I'm having the same problem with the categories too, a few of them work but most of them dont. Check it out at http://www.incomingsound.net/ hover over the Discover button in the nav.
